7:23 am
that and you begin to worry because all that money you worked so hard to make over the years just went away, and you didn't do anything, you didn't do anything wrong, but the market took it away and that happens periodically. >> this is not a time to panic, though, is it. >> no. panic is always the wrong decision when you're dealing with investments, because panic usually occurs when things are at their worst and it's usually at the time when things are at their worst right before they begin to actually recover. so you shouldn't panic. that's usually what you do at the bottom. the rule on wall street is buy low, sell high. right? not buy high, sell low. don't sell when things are low. >> why is this happening? >> well, there are a lot of reasons. largely because we're really if a global iced economy and we're in global ohio ized financial market. we've st. augustine two phenomena occur. one, the chinese market has been slowing down substantially and it has caught some people by surprise
7:24 am
the rest of the world economy is with china, so that's one thing. china's devaluing its currency, that makes the dollar very strong and if the dollar is strong, it makes it difficult for people aren't the world to buy american products and goods. when that happens, corporate earnings begin to get weaker because the u.s. companies can't sell as much overseas and if earnings get weak, then stocks get weak. so that's one thing. the other of course is oil. oil has had a big factor on this. >> let's talk about that, oil prices slipping. we've seen the price -- by my house it was $1.79 this morning. it's been going down for a number of weeks now. >> years. >> this is playing a role in this as well, right? >> no question about it. we take oil for granted until it gets -- gasoline gets to four dollars a gallon, then you don't take it for granted at all. but when it gets below two dollars, everyone thinks this is the best thing in the world.
7:25 am
energy industry is a very very big part of the u.s. economy, and when oil prices decline like this, it becomes an unprofitable business for many companies in the u.s. and if companies are profitable, then they begin to lay people off and it begins to have after economic impact, and you forget that there are people that provide manufactured goods to the energy industry. they build boats for tankers and so forth. so right now there's an over supply of oil which drives down the price. when the price gets low, the energy industry gets weak, their earnings get weak, they've borrowed money from banks, so if they can't pay the banks back, that effects the banking industry and they begin to see the interconnectedness of all these things and that begins to play out eventually on wall street which always responds to big changes in the economy. >> it's always so fascinating. thank you for coming in on this saturday morning, jeff. >> you bet. >> still to come on good day.

years from now what are we going to have. >> i can tell about you 22 hours from now we're going to have some strong storms moving back in. let's talk about how beautiful it's going to be today first before we get to that. we have a little bit of cloud cover and i do expect as the day moves along we will get more cloud cover, so we'll start with sunshine today and today we'll end with cloud cover. today will be a warm day overall . our temperature is about 70 degrees. we'll make the mid 70s, so for you warm weather lovers it will be a pretty decent day. i will also say this will be the warmest next seven days, because after the thunderstorms come through tomorrow morning, the cold air -- it's opening up a big door and lots of cold air is coming in for much of next week. temperatures this morning are running a few degrees above normal. 55 in brooksville, wesley, chapel as well.
